November 17, 2017

Washington, DC—Wiley Rein LLP garnered a top spot on Washington Business Journal’s “Largest Corporate Philanthropists” list for Midsize Companies – as measured by DC metro-area giving – for the third year in a row. Ranked No. 4 in a list of 15 companies in the greater DC area, Wiley Rein was one of only two law firms to secure a top rating in the “midsize” category, defined as companies in the region with 100 to 999 employees.

Wiley Rein gave $1.1 million in donations to Washington, DC-area charities and, in total, contributed $1.3 million to more than 600 charitable organizations nationwide. The firm also received top rankings in the midsize company list for employee volunteer hours, and the list of top law firms by pro bono hours.

Wiley Rein prides itself on a strong tradition of service to the local and global community, and encourages its lawyers and legal assistants to participate in pro bono activities. Wiley Rein staff and attorneys also assist the local community in a number of other ways, including annual fundraisers and other community service events.

The Corporate Philanthropy Awards honors businesses in the Greater Washington area that are ranked in the Washington Business Journal’s Corporate Philanthropy lists based upon prior-year giving. Honorees are the companies from the lists compiled by the Journal and are organized by local giving (dollars) and volunteer hours, as well as law firms (pro bono hours).
